    Anybody else signed up for flu shot?

    Respiratory illness just kicks my butt anymore. Getting my shot on Monday.

    Does anyone else get really emotional when they're unwell?

    I know that a lot of us feel unwell most of the time. That probably wasn't a very well phrased title. But what I mean is... Do you get easily upset when you have a cold/flu/infection?

    As an example, back in May I picked up a very nasty stomach bug (that my baby nephew ever-so-lovingly decided to share)... And for the entire day, I just kept breaking down into tears. For pretty much no reason. I don't know if it was frustration or if I'd just had enough... But I've noticed it happens every time I'm unwell.

    I've had a cold for about a week now (several COVID tests have come back negative, despite me being certain this isn't an ordinary cold), and I just keep breaking down at the drop of a hat. My sister brought me a slice of my favourite cake from my favourite bakery and I burst into tears. The level of emotion is crazy. I don't like crying even when I'm feeling okay, so when I suddenly start sobbing, I get angry at myself and then usually end up crying more... I keep wondering if it's simply exhaustion? I'm immuno-compromised, so what other people would call a mild illness, is usually something that knocks me off my feet.

    I'd just like to know if there's anyone else out there that's like this? And if you know of a way I could maybe minimise the tears? I feel so silly.

    Wellness Wednesday: Diabetes, Flu and Flu Shots

    My favorite season is approaching!

    Leaves changing colors,
    Pumpkin picking,
    Apple picking,
    Cooler weather,
    Sweaters and boots,
    Harvest festivals,
    The food!

    I love Fall!

    However, Fall is also the beginning of flu season.

    Did you know that it’s recommended for people with chronic conditions like diabetes to get a flu shot every year?

    Check out this brief article about Diabetes and the Flu:

    Covid/Flu Scare

    I'm in isolation until Saturday. Early in the week I found out I have both Covid and the flu.

    The first three days were absolute agony. I did worry that I would have to go to hospital.

    Some of my symptoms are finally starting to go away.

    I think I will make a full recovery.

    That was extremely scary and physically painful to go through. #COVID19 #Flu

    I’m so sick and tired... Of feeling sick and tired.

    I have no idea what’s going on with me at the moment. I don’t know if I’m coming down with a cold/flu or if my body is just starting to give up on me...

    Since the 27th September I’ve had this CONSTANT queasy feeling that has left me eating very very tiny amounts of food - perhaps half a meal every couple of days (if that). I’ve even been struggling to drink. And last Wednesday evening I started to ache all over my body so much that I was crying an awful lot. Then on Thursday I was very badly congested - I assumed I was starting to develop a cold. But by Friday nearly all of my symptoms were gone; I just ached a little bit. But since then I’ve stayed in this very unpleasant place since then where the cold actually feels like it’s hurting me. I have not had any fever at all.

    And then starting from this morning it just feels as though every muscle in my body is extremely stiff and sore. I can barely raise a cup to my lips and brushing my teeth was nearly impossible. It’s almost like I’ve been working out or weight lifting, which is something I haven’t done in years. The back of my throat is a bit scratchy and sometimes my nose begins to run a little but when I blow it there’s nothing coming out.

    I’ve taken my bed time medication early I’m hopefully going to fall asleep soon. So, like the title says... I’m so sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Do you think this could be the flu? I haven’t been able to have my vaccine yet as my GP surgery is waiting for more stock to arrive. Usually by October I’ve already had it done. I haven’t had the flu in at least four or five years, thankfully. It always knocks me on my ass for a very long time when I have had it before.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Question

    Am I right?? ( I’m hiding my sick face 😂)

    So I’m currently sick now and have all the #COVID19 symptoms except for 1 important thing. I feel some congestion in my chest but only feels like a kitten sitting on my chest, not an Elephant. I can still breathe easily. My fever is about 102. I think it’s the flu and monitoring it. If my breathing changes I will call Dr. My bestie is telling me to get my ass to the hospital now. I’m immune compromised. #AutoimmuneDisease #sjogrens #CoronaVirus #Flu #Fibromyalgia #ChronicPain #Spoonies #HiatalHernia #Depression # Anxiety #PTSD
